Yes Virginia, There Will Be a Circus This Year
Despite what you may have heard about the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus shutting down, there WILL be a Shrine Circus in Sioux Falls this Spring.
According to Rob Joyce of the El Riad Shrine, with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus closing, they've been getting a lot of calls about the Shrine Circus.
Joyce says people are calling up and saying they heard the circus is going out of business and wondering if that includes the Shrine Circus.
"No. There will be a Shrine Circus this year, April 20-23 at the Sioux Falls Arena. Tigers, elephants, dogs, clowns, acrobats, jugglers, the human cannonball - it's the whole show."
Tickets go on sale at the Shrine office downtown beginning Thursday April 13.
